Inaugural Thank Ride
Thanksgiving is a day for giving thanks, eating delicious food, and cherishing time with your loved ones. But for cyclists, it’s also a chance to spend a few hours riding with friends in celebration of the local on-bike community, too. This year, Dialed Health head coach Derek Teel decided to organize a ride to do just this. He brought a wide range of local cyclists together for a morning of fun, camaraderie, and free coffee— not to mention the promise of being home before family festivities began. The result was a new tradition called the Thank Ride, and it just might have been the best ride of the year.

This ride pushed the limits of Lauren's available terrain, climbing over 4,000 Vertical Feet on a 65ft. "mound of trash" in Florida, USA. Most would have written off this challenge due to not having a large hill or mountain. The mental fortitude it took to even see this as possible (let alone start), is why she has been chosen to win the Garmin 830 Sensor Bundle. See the details of her ride here!
